Is there a difference between canadian tsb's and U.S. tsb's? My '05 tacoma is bottoming out and the dealer won't do anything and they say SPRINGS are not covered, only shocks, bushings etc. and they say I have a spring problem?
any advice?

are you with in the 3/36? Leaf springs are part of the TSB. I dont know if there is a difference from the CN to US TSB. Did you view the PDF TSB files?

I'm just going through the ECP on my '09 purchase and I see nothing here about springs.
CDN models (at least mine did) come with the 4 leaf and wiring loom to the tailgate for the camera.
No wiring for foglamps. FYI.

The leaf spring TSB isn't covered under the extended warrenty ... Found that out the hard way

Go to a spring shop and get an extra leaf added

BTW tail gate TSB isn't covered either

I was quite worried about getting any kind of warranty work done since I imported my Taco from the U.S, and was worried about the hassles I would get from Canadian dealers. I went to a Canadian dealer about 2 weeks ago with the TSB in hand, and they booked me an appointment, no questions asked. When the parts arrived in about 2 days, I checked that they had the right parts and part numbers. My appontment was for the following day, and when I got it done, I noticed there was no mention of an alignment on the work order. I thought I'd drive away and see if it needed an alignment first. Sure enough, the steering wheel was not centered when I drove straight. I went right back to the dealer, and the service rep gave me the "Toyota Canada does not cover alignments" line. I showed him the TSB, and he told me that was an American TSB. Another service rep told me she would ask the service manager. After 20 minutes of waiting for the service manager to get out of a meeting, he said, "No Problem." The first service rep told me that it is being covered under the one year warranty, and not the TSB. I think is a lie to cover his mistake. However, I don't care how it's covered, so long as it is covered. I got my Taco back from the alignment, and it drives great! It used to bounce quite a bit when I went over bumps towing my travel trailer. I'll find out how it tows next summer when I take my trailer out of storage. Anyway, I was shuttled from the dealership to work and back when they replaced the springs and when they did the alignment. I noticed the dealer's shuttle vehicle is an American model Sienna. No issues there!</QUOTE>

Well good luck. I took 4 issues to my dealer today after only one week of ownership and only 500 km on the clock. Aside from the fog lamps (not connected) that I got from the US, I won't be doing any mods until the warranty bugs are worked out.
